Question about Sony DVP-FX930 Portable DVD Player

1 Answer

When I play a DVD on my DVPFX930, the screen goes black (as if it's turned off) but I could still hear the sound. So I know the DVD is still playing it's the screen that is not displaying anything! Please help!

Not for the novice, attempt at own risk, but if you do nothing, you now own a very expensive door stop anyways.

I removed all the screws from the bottom. There are 16 screws. 4 are under the corner rubber feet (not under the two feet at the midline). The feet can be peeled off with a knife. One screw is under a warranty void stick - I had to break that sticker. After removing all the screws the player came apart easily. The cable from the screen has a white connector on the motherboard. There is no clip on this connector and it can be easily removed. I removed it and then reseated it. I replaced the battery without putting the screws back and held the player together by hand while turning on the power switch. I got the initial blue screen. I then tried a DVD and it showed up on screen. I replaced all the screws and it continues to work.

I suspect that the cable connector could work lose again. When it does I might try adding a little epoxy on the cable connector junction to hold it in place.

I dont know if this is the root cause for all blank video reports on your site. But a mechanical failure like a poor cable connection rather than electrical seems to be consistent with reports of intermittent problems before complete video failure.

    Easy to follow instructions and it worked!!! This is the best tip by far. I was ready to go out and buy a new portable DVD player and found this fix worked. Thank you to PokeyJoe for taking the time to post this tip and for being so clear in details on what to do.

Hello
You haven't given the exact model number ot your LG DVD, so I can only give you a general solution to this problem.
Get into its meny, surf through, come to SYSTEM adjust window, change the system. If a NTSC system recorded disc played with PAL system adjustment with DVD, there will be only black/white pciture, and vice versa.
Adjust it to the color system thathave been adopted your country. this must solve the problem. OK.

When trying to play a disc the screen says loading then just goes back to black. You can hear the disc start to turn but then it just stops. Any suggestions?


Try playing any other disc and check. If the issue persists, try resetting the player. Remove the battery pack of the player, then after a minute reconnect the battery pack and check if it helps. If the issue persists, then the player requires service.

DVD player isn't showing anything


do you hear movement inside like disc rotating, if so then the switch that closest lid is damaged. This is when you fold dvd down it hits this switch to turn monitor off. It could be damaged. If there is no noise or movement then power supply has damaged or batt dead and no power goes to it from power cord.

Picture turns off sound is on


Hi Anya, Im sorry to hear of your difficulties but very happy to know im not alone. I have the same exact Sony model and the same exact problem. I wasnt sure if it was my Tv or my upconvert Sansung DVD player. I spoke with Sony assistance..and well..they were of no assistance. They blamed it on my HDMI cable, then the dvd's i was playing, then the dvd player itself. I ruled out all of the above. Mine goes black when i play a dvd in the upconvert format (720p or 1080i) otherwise known as digital..but the analog signal goes through fine. Luckily i am within my 30 days since I bought it, so now that I have seen your posting and am certain its a tv issue, I think i will return it and buy a Samsun tv (a great alternative for same price with only drawback being a glossy screen=not good for bright rooms but amazing color clarity). Sorry I dont have answer for the problem other than your not alone on this one. I have read other Sony users listing similar issues. I hope all goes well with you and wish you the best Matthew
